GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FRATERNAL DEAD 

The Grand Chaplain, R. Ex. Comp. Rev. Arthur W. Watson gave the following 
report: 

During the year 1980, 395 of our Companions passed to the Grand Chapter 
above, of whom 29 held Grand Chapter Rank. We also remember 11 of Past Grand 
Rank reported from Sister Jurisdictions. 

Memorial Service 

From the beginning of history it has been the custom among men of all races to 
honour the memory of their departed brethren. Wherefore it is fitting that Royal 
Arch Masons should from time to time meet together in solemn assembly to com- 
memorate Companions at rest and to remind ourselves of that hope beyond the grave, 
the preparation for which should be our daily concern. 

As we engage in this service of remembrance let us sing "Abide With Me". 

Hear some words which are apropos to this occasion. They are found in the 
"Wisdom of Solomon": 



"The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God and no torment shall touch 
them. In the eyes of the foolish they seemed to die, and their departure was 
accounted for their hurt. And their going from us was taken to be their ruin; but 
they are in peace. For though in the sight of men they be punished, yet is their 
hope full of immortality. And, having borne a little chastening, they shall receive 
great good, because God made trial of them and found them worthy of himself. 
As gold in the furnace he proved them, and as a whole burnt offering he accept- 
ed them. They that trust in him shall understand truth, and the faithful shall 
abide with him in love. Because grace and mercy are to his chosen, and he will 
graciously visit his holy ones. For in the Lord is their reward, and the care of 
them is with the Most High. Therefore shall they receive a glorious Kingdom, 
and a crown of beauty from the Lord's own hand." 

Let us Pray: 

Almighty God, we remember before Thee those who have lived among us, who 
have directed our steps in the way, opened our eyes to the truth, inspired our hearts 
by their witness, and strengthened our wills by their devotion. We rejoice in their lives 
dedicated to Thy service; we honour them in their death; and we pray that we may be 
united with them through Thine eternal power. 

Grant that this moment of memory may be a mount of vision, from which new 
light shall fall upon our fleeting days; that we may think of our lives as sent from 
Thee, on Thy errand for services Thou hast appointed. 

Reverently, O God, we give ourselves to Thee in a new dedication. 

Fill our minds with light and our hearts with love, that we may serve Thee with 
patient faith and joyous confidence. Build our lives into Thy temple of spiritual 
fellowship and keep us, as Companions, steadfast in that fellowship; and to Thee be 
honour and glory, thanksgiving and adoration, world without end. 

May the blessing of the Great Jehovah rest upon us. May He give us light to 
guide us, courage to support us and love to unite us, now and evermore. AMEN. 

Let us close these moments of sacred remembrance as we sing - "O God Our 
Help in Ages Past".

ANNAUL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 17 



GRAND FIRST PRINCIPAL'S ADDRESS— APRIL 1981 

Most Ex. the Past Grand First Principals, Most Wor. Bro. N. Richard Richards, 
our beloved Grand Master, Distinguished guests and Companions all. 

In my inaugural address, following my installation as your Grand First Principal, 
I suggested that, and I quote, "Before us, spotless and untouched, lie seven hundred 
and thirty days in which we must endeavour to continue the task of selling Royal 
Arch Masonry to a world which is desperately in need of a return to some form of 
moral and spiritual stability." unquote. My companions, three hundred and sixty-five 
of those precious days have literally flown by, embellished or marred by those things 
we ought to have done and those things that we ought not to have done. As the signs 
which are entrusted to a Master Mason have reference to the duties we owe to each 
other, under the Fatherhood of God, so do the signs of a Royal Arch Mason mark in 
a peculiar manner the relationship that we bear to Almightly Jehovah, as frail 
creatures of the dust, offending against His most holy will and word, but yet the 
adopted children of His mercy. 

It is in this context that we have convened the 123rd Annual Convocation of this 
Grand Chapter, to report on our stewardship during the past twelve months. 

First, however I want to express my sincere appreciation to our Grand Chapter 
for accepting the invitation from the Royal Arch Companions of the Hamilton 
District No. 5 to meet in this, the industrial metropolis of Canada, and to Mayor 
Wm. Powell for his kind and generous welcome. We also appreciate receiving from 
the Hamilton City Council a grant of $700.00 to assist in defraying our expenses, 
ing our expenses. 

The last time our Grand Chapter met in Hamilton was in the year 1946 when the 
Eighty-Eighth Annual Convocation was convened in this very same hotel, under Most 
Ex. Comp. Reginald Conover of Brampton, His Grand Second Principal was Rt. Ex. 
Comp. Fredrick Dean, of Hamilton, and the Grand Third Principal was Rt. Ex. 
Comp. Clarence McLeod Pitts of Ottawa. These Most Excellent Companions have all 
passed into the pages of our history, and have left behind a legacy of service and 
sacrifice, of love and devotion, that has carried us through many difficult times. 

I am also pleased that our Grand Master, Most Wor. Bro. and V. Ex. Comp. 
N. Richard Richards has allocated time from his extremely busy schedule, to grace 
our Grand Chapter with his presence. On your behalf I reaffirm our allegiance to 
the Grand Lodge that he represents, and our gratitude and love to him as an 
individual for all that he has given to us. 

We are also happy to have so many representatives of other Grand Chapters and 
other Masonic Bodies with us on this occasion, and as we welcome them to our midst 
we trust that their visit will be memorable and enjoyable. In a personal vein I would 
like to express my sincere appreciation to all the leaders of these bodies who have 
made my visitation to their Annual meetings equally as memorable and enjoyable. 

NECROLOGY 

Once again, as in previous years, we have suffered grievous losses in the passing 
of so many of our Grand Chapter officers, and companions, to the Grand Chapter 
above. Their names will be listed in these proceedings and their memory will be 
revered by our Grand Chaplain, Rt. Ex. Comp. Arthur W. Watson during our 
Memorial Service. Two of these companions were present Grand Chapter officers, 
and one of the past officers whom I would particularly like to mention is Rt. Ex. 
Comp. Leslie C. Ewener of Sarnia who was a valuable member of our Grand 
Executive Committee for many years. The others were V. Ex. Comp. John Yaeger of 
Toronto, our Grand Historian and V. Ex. Comp. George Finnie, a newly appointed 
Grand Steward. We will long remember all of our deceased companions. 



1 8 GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 



What is this mystery that men call death? 

Our friends before us lie in all save breath; 

They seem the same as yesterday - 

Their faces, so calm, so like to life 

Bear not a trace of that great fear, 

Which all of us so dread - They are not dead - 

But only sleep. We know they will awake 

And take us by the hand as they did yesterday, 

And have some gentle words to say - 

Some kindly deeds to do; For loving thought and deed 

Were warp and woof of which their lives were wrought. 

They are not dead - such souls forever live 

In boundless measure of the love they give. 

APPRECIATION 

Surely my appreciation is extended to all the Past Grand First Principals who have 
quietly and unobtrusively guided this neophyte, through the intricate paths that must 
be followed by their elected leader. I shall be forever grateful to them for their many 
kindnesses and for their understanding of the problems and the short-comings of their 
Grand First Principal. 

I am grateful too, for the support and assistance of the Grand Second Principal, 
Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Stuart, the Grand Third Principal, Rt. Ex. Comp. Edward 
Elcombe, and the Grand Scribe E., Rt. Ex. Comp. Robert Rigby. The Grand Super- 
intendents performed their allotted tasks with zeal and fidelity, and if there is one 
regret, it is the fact that Rt. Ex. Comp. Geo. W.H. Reed, the Grand Superintendent 
of New Ontario District No. 15, decided that he would return to England. George was 
a tremendous force for good in those northern regions, and the district, and indeed 
the whole of Grand Chapter are greatly saddened by this decision. We wish him 
health and happiness in his future endeavours. I appreciate also, the dedication and 
devotion of all the other elected and appointed officers of this Grand Chapter: Rt. 
Ex. Comp. Arthur W. Watson, Grand Chaplain; Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Ferguson, 
Grand Treasurer; Rt. Ex. Comp. Donald Gent, Grand Scribe N.; Rt. Ex. Comp. 
Robert D. Jones, Grand P.S.; Rt. Ex. Comp. Evans Greer, Grand Registrar; V. Ex. 
Comp. Joseph Neill, Grand Organist, all the members of the Grand Executive Com- 
mittee, and especially Rt. Ex. Comp. Leslie Levitt who travelled hundreds of miles at 
his own expense and in all kinds of weather with the film "Saga of the Holy Royal 
Arch", truly an example of devotion. Then there are the individual members of 
Grand Chapter Committees who have laboured so diligently without thought of 
reward. 

To all these Royal Arch Masons I shall be forever grateful. One other person 
who also works quietly and extremely capably in the Grand Chapter office is our 
secretary, Mrs. Rose Kelly, and to her I express our heartfelt gratitude. 

GRAND REPRESENTATIVES 

As a result of a letter which was sent by the Grand First Principal to all Grand 
Chapter Representatives, we received a number of resignations due to age, physical 
disability and re-location to other areas in the country. 

In expressing our appreciation to them for the dedicated services rendered during 
past years, we wish them a peaceful and healthy life during their declining years. I 
have been pleased to recommend the following appointments for which I request your 
approval: 

Alabama - Rt. Ex. Comp. Eugene Harrison, Belleville 
California - Rt. Ex. Comp. J.E. Kilsby, Collingwood 
Connecticut - Rt. Ex. Comp. Clarence Faulkner, Belleville

WELFARE 

In his farewell address last year, Most Ex. Comp. Aube Weisman commended 
those chapters who have been carrying on welfare programmes designed to entertain 
Senior Citizens, handicapped people, under privileged children and to raise money for 
different types of medical research. He concluded with a recommendation that a 
Grand Chapter Welfare Committee be established to give guidance to any Chapter or 
Association which might wish to initiate such a programme. 

In congratulating such bodies as the Toronto R.A. Districts Welfare Committee, 
Mount Sinai Chapter No. 212 Welfare Committee, the committee of Hiawatha 
Chapter No. 252, any others which have not been brought to our attention, we do so 
with a sincere appreciation for the dedicated service, and the obvious sacrifice, that 
they give in the performance of these great philanthropic programmes. 

I have been pleased to appoint Most Ex. Comp. Chas W. Emmett, Most Ex. 
Comp. Wm. S. Thomson and Most Ex. Comp. Aube Weisman as a Grand Chapter 
Welfare Committee, to dispense information and guidance to Chapters, and to 
initiate a 125th Anniversary project to raise a sum of money to be placed in the 125th 
Anniversary Fund, the interest from which will be donated each year to a medical 
programme of our choice. 

Hopefully we will receive a report from this committee later during this Grand 
Convocation. 

PAST RANK 

A request was received to confer the rank of a Past Z. on Ex. Comp. Geo. R. 
Mcintosh, by Mount Nebo Chapter No. 76, Niagara Falls. Because of a move to 
Prince George, B.C. in the course of his employment Ex. Comp. Mcintosh was 
unable to complete his full term as First Principal of Mount Nebo Chapter in 1979. In 
recognition of the invaluable service that he gave to his chapter until his resignation, I 
granted this request and now seek your approval. 

Ex Comp. Jergen A. Mosley suffered a heart attack a few months after his 
installation as First Principal of Quetico Chapter No. 259. On his return to work he 
resumed employment at a mine 400 miles from Atikokan, and therefore could not 
complete his full term. I recommend that Grand Chapter approve his investiture as a 
Past Principal. 

McKay Chapter No. 243 requested the rank of a Past Principal for Comp. Rev. 
Wm. Sutherland who qualifies as an ordained minister. Comp. Sutherland has render- 
ed great service to his chapter in the field of Masonic education. I recommend that 
this request be granted. 

Due to the regretful passing of V. Ex. Comp. Geo. Finnie of Port Hope, I was 
pleased to appoint Ex. Comp. Gordon P. Knifton as a Grand Steward. Ex. Comp. 
Knifton was recommended very highly by the Grand Superintendent, Rt. Ex. Comp. 
Gerald Trew and the Past Principals of St. John's Chapter No. 48. I now request 
approval of this appointment. 



20 GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 



Rt. Wor. Bro. Howard Polk our Deputy Grand Master will be installed as our 
Grand Master during the next communication of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario. I therefore recommend that Comp. Polk be granted the rank of 
a Past Principal of Carlton Chapter No. 16, Ottawa. 

I also appointed Rt. Ex. Comp. Samuel Tenenbaum as our Grand Historian to 
complete the unexpired term of the late V. Ex. Comp. John Yaeger. Approval of this 
appointment can be shown by selecting him permanently to this office. 

THE WEARING OF R.A. JEWELS IN A CRAFT LODGE 

I discussed with the Grand Master and the Grand Lodge the problem of indis- 
criminate wearing of Royal Arch jewels in Craft Lodges and would like to bring to 
your attention the fact that one R.A. jewel, and one R.A. jewel only, may be worn in 
a Craft Lodge, namely the jewel of a Royal Arch Mason. 

In a chapter, companions may wear any jewels or medals which have been 
approved by this Grand Chapter together with those that have been approved by the 
Grand Lodge of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Once again many of our chapters are suffering from a lack of new candidates 
and I would humbly suggest that the vineyards are full of potential candidates for 
Royal Arch Masonry who are only waiting for an invitation. We must go to them and 
inform then that Royal Arch Masonry is truly the completion of the degree of a Master 
Mason. A number of our chapters have obtained new quarters which will be dedicated 
in the months to come, and some are considering a move to areas which are more 
active, masonically speaking. 

During the past year we initiated 612 new members, restored 27 and welcomed 63 
by affiliation, for a total of 702. Unfortunately these additions were offset by 406 
deaths, 120 suspensions and 195 withdrawals, giving us a net loss on the year's 
operation of 19. With two new active chapters in our jurisdiction, we hope to reverse 
this trend for the year 1981. 

Wm. S. THOMSON MEMBERSHIP TROPHY 

Competition for the Wm. S. Thomson trophy awarded annually to the chapter 
having the greatest percentage increase during the past year, has once again proved to 
be keen and exciting. The leading chapters in this contest were: 

Ulster Chapter No. 219 in Weston; Bruce Chapter No. 53, Petrolia; and Lebanon 
Chapter No. 220, Etobicoke and the winner was Ulster Chapter with an increase of 
12.5%. We congratulate this active chapter on its achievement. 

It is also worthy of mention that the E.K. Hogaboom trophy which was donated 
by our Grand Second Principal, Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Stuart, is presented annually 
to the chapter in Toronto District 8A making the greatest progress in the areas of 
attendance, ritualistic presentation and banquet room programme. Congratulations to 
Oakwood Chapter No. 233 of Markham who were the first winners of this trophy. 

DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARDS 

Your Grand Chapter is pleased to confirm the presentation of Distinguished 
Service Awards to the following companions: 

Comp. Roy William Mason - Alberton Chapter No. 152 
Comp. Thos. Alexander Geddes - Orient Chapter No. 79 
Comp. C. Roy Griffith - Maple Chapter No. 1 16 
Comp. George Burrows - Peel Chapter No. 195 

We thank these devoted companions for the services they have freely given to 
their own chapter and to Royal Arch Masonry in general. 



ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 21 



LIFE MEMBERSHIPS 

Many of our chapters have accepted the recommendation of the Grand Chapter 
and are gradually building up their Life-membership funds. I would recommend that 
we continue to pursue this phase of our membership, which is designed to improve 
the financial aspect of our constituent chapters, and remove the need for suspensions 
and demits. 

NEW CHAPTERS 

Tecumseth Chapter having received its dispensation dated February 8th 1980 and 
having satisfied all the requirements of the Grand Chapter constitution, now wish to 
be consecrated as a chapter and issued a warrant. I therefore recommend that this 
warrant be granted, that they be numbered 264 on the Grand Register and placed in 
Georgian District No. 9. 

Brampton Chapter having received a dispensation dated April 7th, 1980 and 
having satisfied all the requirement of the Grand Chapter constitution now wish to be 
consecrated as a chapter and issued a warrant. I therefore recommend that this 
warrant be granted, that they be numbered 265 on the Grand Register and placed in 
Toronto District 8A. If this request is granted they would like to have their chapter 
consecrated on April 25th, 1981. 

We also received requests to dedicate the Chapter room for Kitchener Chapter 
No. 210 in Richmond and Malloch Chapter No. 66 in Hensall. The latter ceremony 
was performed on October 15th, 1980, and the former on March 21st of this year. 



VISITATIONS 

Since my installation I have travelled extensively throughout the North American 
continent, from Espanola in the north to Virginia in the south, from Halifax in the 
east to Saskatchewan in the west, carrying the greetings of our Grand Chapter to the 
Masonic Bodies that were our hosts on such occasions. Most Ex. Comp. Aube 
Weisman and his wife Fae accompanied my wife and me to the Grand Chapter of 
Virginia, Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Stuart and his wife Doreen accompanied us to the 
Grand Chapter of Michigan, and we also enjoyed the company of Most Ex. Comp. 
Wm. Sproule and his wife Anne on our visit to the Grand Chapter of New York. A 
list of these visitations will be appended to this message. 

Outstanding among them were five anniversary celebrations, two receptions to 
the Grand First Principal, the dedications of Chapter rooms at Hensall and 
Richmond, many chapter installations, the installation of many Royal Arch Masons 
as Worshipful Masters of their craft lodges, notably, Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Stuart 
W.M. of General Mercer Lodge, Toronto, Rt. Ex. Comp. Wm. Boston W.M. of 
Anniversary Lodge, Brampton, Rt. Ex. Comp. Donald Gent W.M. of Merrill Lodge, 
Nilestown and many other Companions and Ex. Companions too numerous to 
mention. Your Grand Chapter offers sincere congratulations and much happiness to 
these busy masons. 

SPECIAL NIGHTS 

Grand Chapter Degree teams conferred the Supreme Degree of the Holy Royal 
Arch on a number of Grand Lodge officers as follows: 

Nov. 4th, 1980 - Rt. Wor. Bro. Frank Bruce in Pentalpha No. 28 
Jan. 21st, 1981 - Rt. Wor. Bro. Wallace McLeod in King Cyrus No. 232 
Mar. 3rd, 1981 - Rt. Wor. Bro. John Woodburn in Peel No. 195 
Mar. 9th, 1981 - Rt. Wor. Bro. Allan Newell in Brampton U.D. 

We welcome these distinguished masons into Capitular Masonry. 



22 GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 



LONG SERVICE JEWELS 

It has been my privilege to present, personally, many of these long service jewels, 
and to all the recipients whose names will be listed elsewhere, we extend our con- 
gratulations, and our sincere appreciation for the service they have rendered to Royal 
Arch Masonry. Perhaps special mention could be made of the presentation of a 75 
year numeral by your Grand First Principal, to Comp. H.E. Chittenden of Mount 
Horeb Chapter No. 20 who would have celebrated his 100th birthday on March 6th 
this year. Unfortunately he passed away on October 18, 1980. Then too, while we 
were in Espanola last Dec. 6th we had the opportunity to visit Comp. Maurice Dyke 
of Algonquin Chapter who was 100 years young in February of 1981. These are only 
a few of the many companions who have given years of dedicated service to our 
Grand Chapter, for which we thank them sincerely. 

In this connection your Grand Advisory has agreed to produce a wallet sized card 
to be presented with these long service jewels. We also plan to make available a 25 
year Royal Arch Masons certificate which may be purchased by the constituent 
chapters. 

HONOURS RECEIVED 

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Hamilton District No. 5 and 
Ontario District No. 10 for the receptions which they tendered to me. I was also pri- 
vileged to receive the following honourary memberships: 1. Orient Chapter No. 79; 
2. The Hiram Chapter No. 2; 3. Buffalo - Keystone Chapter No. 71; 4. The Grand 
Chapter of Saskatchewan; 5. The Grand Chapter of Michigan; 6. Grand Council 
Thrice Illustrious Masters in Virginia; 7. Grand Council Annointed High Priests in 
Virginia. 

I am also proud that I have been elected to receive the "Order of the Purple 
Cross" at the next general assembly of the York Rite Sovereign College of North 
America in Detroit on July 30th, 1981. This is the highest honour that can be 
bestowed by this illustrious body and I am grateful to the Grand Governor, Henry A. 
Montague and the Grand body that he represents. 

CEREMONY FOR THE INSTITUTION OF A 

NEW CHAPTER UNDER DISPENSATION 

Realizing the need for a formal ceremony for the Institution of a new chapter, I 
took the liberty of preparing one, and presented it to the members of the Grand 
Advisory for their comments and suggestions. These having been received favourably, 
I now request the approval of this Grand Body for the adoption of this ceremony 
which would be kept in the Grand Chapter office, and made available when any new 
chapter is formed. 

FINALLY 

A number of items, some of which will be reported elsewhere, happened during 
the year. 

Many dispensations were granted for various reasons. 

Requests were received to change By-laws. 

We have made changes in the instructions for the new Grand 

Superintendents, on a trial basis. 

We encountered a number of minor personell problems in some 

of the chapters which hopefully have been, or will be resolved 

to the satisfaction of all concerned. 

Invitations to hold this Grand Chapter Convocation outside the Metropolitan 
City of Toronto in the odd years commencing in 1985 will be welcomed and considered 
by the Grand Advisory Committee. 



ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 23 



All in all, my companions, it has been a very busy and enjoyable year of progress. 
I would like to recommend that we all remember and renew the obligations that we 
have taken at the altars of Freemasonry. Let me impress upon your minds, and let it 
be instilled into your hearts, that every human being has an undoubted claim to your 
kind offices. We therefore strictly enjoin you to do good to all people, but more 
especially your companions in Royal Arch Masonry. 

Each Masonic year-end brings with it the hope that we can benefit by our mis- 
takes and make the year that lies ahead even better than before, and as Royal Arch 
Masons I request your continued support and co-operation as we prepare to meet the 
changes and the challenges that lie before us. 

LIFE'S DESIGN 

Each day we live adds to the pattern 

We weave on the loom of life, 

And sometimes the threads are golden and gay, 

Or the dark threads of sorrow and strife. 

Sometimes the pattern falls right in line 

Sometimes it seems slightly askew; 
Sometimes the design seems all tangled, 
And makes no sense to me and to you. 

But our God is the Master weaver, 

He directs the design from above, 

And we may be sure that each single strand 

Is woven in kindness and love.

REPORT OF THE GRAND SCRIBE E. 



To the Most Excellent, the Grand First Principal, 
Grand Chapter, Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario: 

Most Excellent Sir and Companions: 

The Grand Chapter Office and the Grand Scribe E. have little to add to the 
reports of the various Committees which you will be receiving. 

We are still beset with such problems as disagreement in membership totals 
of Chapters, which is not surprising as some few Chapters only register their 
new members once a year, at the year end, instead of within 30 days of the 
Mark Degree. 



ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 29 



Additionally, they also only advise us of deaths at the year end, so we can have 
a swing of up to a dozen or so in their membership. It is very disconcerting for 
Mrs. Kelly and me to find we cannot balance the membership figures at our 
busiest time. Your co-operation in this regard will help us immeasurably. 

Several Chapters have moved into other Temples, and plans are under way 
for about 8 or 9 Dedication Ceremonies. In view of the demands on the 
Grand Z's schedule, it is hoped that when you make any request for attendance 
by the Council and Grand Chapter, you will suggest alternative dates so that 
it can be arranged with as little disruption as possible. 

We look forward to our next year with high hope, and wish for the 
Grand First Principal - Good health and a continuance of his successful 
stewardship on our behalf. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Robert T. Rigby, 
Grand Scribe E. 

Moved by Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Stuart 

Seconded by Rt. Ex. Comp. Robert T. Rigby 

that this report be received by Grand Chapter and adopted. 

Carried

To the Members of Grand Chapter Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of 
Ontario. 

We have examined the balance sheets of Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons 
of Canada in the Province of Ontario as at February 28, 1981, and the statements of 
revenue and expenditure for the year then ended. Our examination was made in 
accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and accordingly included such

In our opinion, these financial statements present fairly the financial position 
of the Grand Chapter as at February 28, 1981 and the results of its operations for the 
year then ended in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applied 
on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year.

REPORT OF THE PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE 

To the Most Excellent the Grand First Principal, Grand Council and 
Companions: 

This Committee has performed a service to the Companions. 

The Keystone has been issued once under the Editor, Rt. Ex. Comp. George 
Johnston and his assistant Editor Rt. Ex. Comp. Sam Tenenbaum. This is Com- 
municating. Communication seems to be the key to solve most of our problems. 

When we communicate, then things go more smoothly - this was proved last 
night. We have given each Chapter and individual Companion the power to Com- 
municate with us by writing in all information to the Keystone and we transmit this 
back to the sick the shut-ins, and those who are faroff, but interested. 

Get Committed. Get Communicating. 

Thank you, Companions for the past support. 

Continue Communicating. 

Respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF THE PRINTING AND SUPPLIES COMMITTEE 

To the Most Excellent Grand First Principal, Officers and Members of the 
Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario: 

During the past year, liaison was maintained with the Grand Scribe E. as to 
printing costs. Quotations were obtained from several printing firms whenever the 
need arose for forms, pamphlets etc. in order to obtain the most economical cost. 
This information was made available to our Grand Z. 

Your Committee on Printing and Supplies has received the expenditures for the 
year ending February 28th, 1981 and submits the following analysis in support 
thereof: 

Printing Proceedings 2,363.00 

Printing General 1 ,790.00 

Printing for Resale 3,143.00 

$7,287.00 

It is respectfully requested that the following monies be placed at the disposal 
of the Printing and Supplies Committee for the fiscal year 1981-82. 

Printing Proceedings $3,000.00 

Printing General 1 ,500.00 

Printing for Distribution and Resale 1,000.00 

$5,500.00 

The above estimated costs for 1981-82 are in keeping with the general increased 
printing costs.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON BENEVOLENCE 

To the Most Excellent Grand First Principal, Officers and Companions of the Grand 
Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Excellent Grand Z, and Companions; 

Your Committee on Benevolence have considered the Applications for 
Assistance by the Various Chapters and recommend that Grants be authorized from 
the Victory Thanksgiving Benevolent Fund for the several Chapters in an Amount of 
$3,500.00. 

We further recommend that an amount of $1,500.00 be provided for Interim 
Relief should it be needed before the next Annual Convocation of Grand Chapter. 

During the past Grand Chapter year we assisted eleven Companions and 
widows of Companions in an amount of $4,950.00. In relation to our total Member- 
ship it would appear that this is a small number of Companions and widows 
requiring assistance. We are aware that care must be, and is, exercised in the making 
of Grants that they do not conflict with any assistance which may be forthcoming 
from Government Agencies. 

Benevolence is defined as a disposition of an act of kindness that has the 
approbation of heaven and earth and like its sister mercy blesses him who gives as 
well as he who receives. This is the basic truth of Masonry which we all appreciate. 
The happiness is in action but the true test is what we are willing to do for others. 

Again, we direct your attention to all Chapters to the - Rules Respecting 
Benevolence - as defined in the Book of Constitution. We particularly wish to draw 
attention to all First Principals and Chapter Benevolence Committees that all Appli- 
cations, whether new or renewals, should be in the hands of the Grand Scribe E not 
later than January 31st this is - a must. 

Remember Companions it is more blessed to give than to receive. 

Respectfully and fraternally,

ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 67 



REPORT OF THE GRAND TREASURER 

To the Most Excellent the Grand First Principal, Officers and Members of the Grand 
Chapter of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Unfortunately the Auditor's Report was not received until late Saturday 
afternoon, although mailed ten days earlier from Belleville. The mail has still not 
arrived and we were fortunate to have a member from Belleville bring several copies 
with him to another meeting held in Toronto last Saturday. 

I have examined the Auditor's Report thoroughly and noted several errors in 
the Balance Sheet. These have been discussed with the Auditor and confirmed. He is 
preparing a corrected Balance Sheet which will be printed in the proceedings of this 
Convocation. 

I regret to say that our General Fund suffered expenditures of $8,675. more 
than our income. This loss is attributable to several factors. 1) Our income was 
$3,500. below the estimated budget. 2) Expenditures were approximately $3,600. 
greater in three areas than budgetary allowances. These areas were for: - a) Postage 
and miscellaneous office expenses which exceeded allowance by $1,331. b) Convoca- 
tion expenses were $1,133. over budget, and c) The cost of publishing the Keystone 
was $1,134. over the allocation. 

If we are to avoid increasing the per capita dues then we may have to consider 
some changes in the structure of this Grand Convocation as well as a review of the 
publication of the Keystone in the future. 

The Victory Thanksgiving Benevolent Fund granted $5,850. in assistance to 
members and their families last year and showed a net revenue of $1,304. over 
expenditures. 

The Commuted Life Membership Fund had an increase of $9,090. net revenue, 
indicating that 303 companions became life members during the past year. 

The Bursary Fund received revenue of $12,110. and granted $9,200 in 
bursaries. I am pleased to report that this fund showed a net increase of $2,369. after 
expenses. 

The Insurance Fund showed a net revenue of $623. for the year and now shows 
a reserve of $4,301. for the year ending February 28th, 1981. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

RT. EX. COMP. GORDON T.A. FERGUSON, GRAND TREASURER. 

Moved by Rt. Ex. Comp Stuart, Seconded by Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon T.A. Ferguson, 
that this report be received and adopted. Carried 



68 GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 

REPORT OF THE EDUCATION 
AND GUIDANCE COMMITTEE - 1980-1981 

To the Most Excellent the Grand First Principal, Officers and Members of the Grand 
Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

M. Excellent Sir and Companions: 

In presenting this report of the activities of the Education and Guidance 
Committee for the year 1980-81, I would first express my appreciation and that of the 
jurisdiction, to those dedicated masons, who as District Chairmen and Assistant 
Chairmen, have worked diligently and earnestly to present and promote a better 
understanding and appreciation of Royal Arch Masonry, and by lending guidance to 
strengthen the workings of our various Chapters who are in need. 

It must be noted that in carrying out their responsibilities, these Chairmen 
travelled extensively throughout their Districts, visiting each Chapter as often as 
possible, giving interesting short talks on particular aspects of the work, or on the 
mechanics of its presentation. We must especially acknowledge the efforts of the 
Chairmen in our Northern Districts where distance between Chapters makes their task 
that much more onerous. It has been brought to our attention that in District No. 14, 
an entire chapter has travelled together to assist Chapters in need and for this effort 
we commend them most sincerely. 

While we are recognizing the efforts of members of this Committee, we would 
be most remiss if we did not single out the outstanding contributions of R. Ex. Comp. 
Leslie Levitt, Deputy Chairman, who has logged hundreds of miles throughout this 
jurisdiction, making 20 visits in all, showing the film, "The Saga of the Holy Royal 
Arch", and speaking to Chapters and Lodges alike, spreading the word and under- 
standing regarding Royal Arch Masonry. A most important observations is made by 
R. Ex. Comp. Leslie Levitt, when he states that in most of his visits, he encouraged 
the invitation of the ladies to attend these presentations, and found it to be a positive 
step in encouraging the men to attend, with the social aspect of the evening becoming 
more pronounced. Although in use for some years now, the showing of this fine 
film is still constantly in demand. 

In connection with requests for this film, it is interesting to see the increase in 
the number of Master Masons Nights that are being held by either individual 
Chapters or whole Districts, and where the use of the film provides greater visual 
impact to the accompanying talk on Royal Arch Masonry. Such meetings afford us 
the opportunity of spreading light and knowledge to uninformed brethren from our 
Craft Lodges and to strengthen the ties between symbolical and capitular masonry 
through understanding of our principles and aims. It has been most gratifying, that 
following these Master Masons Nights, invitations have been extended to members of 
this Committee to speak at Craft Lodges. 

It is also of interest that we see many more "Workshops" being held on a 
District Level, covering a broad variety of topics, e.g. 

(a) Traditional and Bibical History of Royal Arch Masonry, 

(b) Etiquette and Protocol, 

(c) Proper Chapter Room Set-Up, 

(d) Mechanics of the .M., M.E.M. and R.A. 

This is just to mention a few. In most cases, attendances at these workshops 
indicate they were a success and augurs well for similar meetings in the future. The 
interest stimulated in the Companions by these meetings has resulted in questions 
being posed that have required the attention of the Grand Lecturer, and his replies 
have been passed along to the Companions so asking. 



ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 69 



A meeting of the Education and Guidance Committee was held in conjunction 
with the Grand Executive Meeting at Brockville on September 16, 1980, hosted by 
Sussex-St. Lawrence Chapter No. 59. Although attendance was lighter than usual, 
there was a very spirited interchange of ideas between the representatives of the 
various Districts, and all agreed that is was a most profitable meeting. 

During the past year, District Degree Teams and Ruling Council Degree Teams 
have been formed, in some instances in conjunction with the Principals Association of 
the district, to assist at any time, Chapters where the shortage of officer material 
requires assistance in conferring their degrees. These teams have also been utilized to 
provide and add interest to a night and to stimulate enthusiasm which may have been 
lagging. Three such interesting evenings were held on January 21 at King Cyrus 
Chapter, Toronto, also March 3 and March 9 at Peel Chapter and Brampton Chapter 
U.D., Brampton, respectively. On these occasions, "Grand Chapter Degree Teams" 
conferred the Order of the Holy Royal Arch of Jeruselem on three distinguished 
members of the Board of General Purpose of Grand Lodge, in the persons of R.W. 
Bro. Wallace McLeod, R.W. Bro. John Woodburn and R.W. Bro. Allen Newell. The 
newly exalted companions were most impressed with the work of the evenings, as 
were the Companions assembled, and Grand Chapter can be justly proud of the 
calibre of the work conferred by the members representing this body. 

It is most gratifying to note that the members of this Committee in District 
No. 11 have been very actively involved with Madoc Chapter No. 161, to assist them 
in resolving serious problems affecting the future of this Chapter and we commend 
them for their dedication to this task. 

We have spoken in length of the positive results of this Committee, but there 
are still some areas where the word "Education" is viewed with a great deal of 
skepticism or at the worst no interest or reaction at all. On closer examination, it is 
found that these areas usually prevail in some of the less thriving chapters. This of 
course is not too surprising, for where there is a lack of understanding and know- 
ledge, interest lags and membership declines. It is felt that the proving of a candidates 
proficiency between degrees would assist greatly in promoting and understanding of 
the work, thus stimulating interest. Further, that when presenting the Grand Chapter 
Certificates to new Companions, we provide some background regarding our history 
and heritage. In this endeavour, members of this Committee could assist the Chapter 
by performing this task. 

In conclusion, we are most grateful to the Companions of this jurisdiction for 
the interest they have shown the work of this Committee and to the District Grand 
Superintendents for their support and to whom this committee is always so ready to 
lend assistance for the welfare of the District. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted on behalf of the Committee.

REPORT OF THE MILEAGE AND PER DIEM COMMITTEE 



To the Most Excellent Grand First Principal, Officer & Companions, Grand 
Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Prov. of Ontario, 
3500 Dufferin St., Suite 505, Downsview, Ont., M3K 1N2. 

Most Excellent Sir and Companions; - 

In accordance with the Constitution and as authorized by the Grand Executive 
Committee your Mileage and Per Diem Committee made disbursements as shown on 
the attached sheet to those members of Grand Chapter authorized to receive same. 

Since it was known by the Grand Scribe E that Most Excellent Companions 
Bradshaw, Hay and House and also Right Excellent Companions Reed and 
VanWamelen would not attend the Grand Convocation the total of their allowances 
was not made available to your Committee. It was also determined that Rt. Ex. 
Comp. Edw. Marshall did not qualify as he had accommodation supplied as General 
Chairman of the Convocation. It was later ascertained that Rt. Ex. Comp. Leslie 
Levitt as General Vice Chairman of the Convocation was in a similar position. In 
addition deletions of one day's allowance were made from those Rt. Ex. Companions 
who had only two days' attendance. 

Once again your Committee notes with regret that Most Excellent Comps. 
Bradshaw and House were unable to attend due to age or infirmities. Most Ex. 
Comp. Edw. Marshall did not qualify as he had accommodation supplied as General 
Chairman of the Convocation. It was later ascertained that Rt. Ex. Comp. Leslie 
It was also noted that the Grand Superintendents of Districts No. 1, 4, 6, 9, 13, and 
16 were absent. Their wise counsel was missed at the meeting of the Grand Executive 
Committee. 

I express my thanks to the Most Excellent Grand Z. for his confidence in 
appointing me as Chairman of this Committee and my thanks to my co-workers.

ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 71 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FRATERNAL 
CORRESPONDENCE AND REVIEW 

To the Most Excellent, The Grand First Principal, Officers and Members of the 
Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Excellent Sir and Companions; 

Your Committee has reviewed over 50 Proceedings of Grand Chapters from all 
over the world. From those who report on membership, (the United States of 
America Chapters) we noted that the number of members continues to decline, 
although not as much as has been in previous years. The percentage of loss to the 
total membership was 2% in the U.S. of A., while the loss in reporting Canadian 
Grand Chapters, including our own, was only 1/2%, indicating that we in Canada are 
faring better than our Companions south of the border. 

The following pertinent article on membership is from Connecticut: "It is 
good that Freemasonry does not rely on popularity. It is still a highly selective Order, 
limiting its membership to upright and just men who appreciate and understand its 
teachings. So long as Freemasonry remains true to its young, and remembers that it 
owes a debt of gratitude to those who have gone before and to those of our elder 
members to whom we shall look for advice and guidance, then masonry will not 
depend on numbers but upon the integrity, devotion and understanding of its active 
members. With this in mind, masonry will see its objectives and aims come true and 
we will enjoy a Fraternity that will be unshakeable fromnow to eternity." 

Also, we noted, from the State of Indiana, the M.E. Grand High Priest said 
the following, which we felt was also worthy of passing on: "Attendance plagues 
every Chapter - the solution belongs to US. - TO WORK - ALL to see that York 
Rite (Capitular) Masonry is not just a name but a LIVE, MOVING Group." 

We were pleased to note that in the Grand Chapter of Nova Scotia pro- 
ceedings, Royal Union Chapter No. 1 celebrated its 200th Anniversary last year, and 
is the oldest chapter in the British Commonwealth overseas. Our congratulations are 
extended to that chapter on reaching this historic milestone. 

The Royal Arch Research Assistance (R.A.R.A.) of the General Grand 
Chapter in the United States continues to be well publicized and supported. 

Respectfully submitted, 

RT. EX. COMP. GEO. S. JOHNSON 
RT. EX. COMP. GEO. HINCHLIFF. 

Moved by Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Stuart, seconded by Rt. Ex. Comp. Edward 
Elcombe that this report be received by Grand Chapter and adopted.

72 GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
CONSTITUTION LAWS AND JURISPRUDENCE 

I am not going to introduce a lengthy report to the proceedings of this Convo- 
cation, but will be content to draw attention to a few highlights. 

(1) We continue to receive a great many requests for By-law amendments and some 
of them travel back and forth several times, in order to get them right. 

(2) The basic problems seem to be that not all documents are included when they are 
sent to us, the body of the Summons does not always refer to the Notice of 
Motion because the Notice is very lengthly and is printed on a separate sheet. It is 
acceptable in such instances to print it on a separate sheet, but there must be a 
reference in the main body of the Summons to the "Notice of Motion enclosed 
herewith". 

(3) Many people still seem to have trouble with the provisions for Life Membership, 
although these seem to be quite straightforward in the Constitution. Section 147 
provides for Life Membership for new members. Current members can then use 
either the sum under 145 or the sum established under 147 by the Chapter, which- 
ever is lower. The "$1.00 a year" under 146 applies only to Section 145. 

We do from time to time get requests for assistance with By-laws and we do 
not mind providing this assistance or answering questions where a problem exists in 
the Chapter concerning how to go about these changes. 

I now present my Notice of Motion with respect to changing the figures in the 
table under Section 145.

ANNUAL CONVOCATION. HAMILTON, 1981 73 



REPORT OF THE GRAND HISTORIAN 

To The Most Excellent, The Grand First Principal, Officers and Members of the 
Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Excellent Sir and Companions: 

When V. Ex. Comp. John E. Yaegar was Passed To The Grand Chapter 
Above, our Grand Z., M. Ex. Comp. Fred Scott, requested this writer to assume the 
vacant office and carry on with the work entrusted to our late Companion. A diligent 
study of the qualififications of a Grand Historian made me most appreciative of the 
devoted and dedicated service V. Ex. Comp. Yaegar had contributed to our 
Fraternity. 

History can be defined as "an account of what has happened in the life of an 
institution". An Historian is a writer of history. His writings should be of such a 
nature that, not only do they relate past events in a clear and comprehensive manner, 
but they should provide a basis for future Historians. 

The report of an Historian should cover a specified period and include events 
of importance to: (i) - Grand Chapter; (ii) - each District; (iii) - each Chapter; and 
(iv) - certain Companions. When an Historian is confronted with such a task and 
given limited space in the Record of Proceedings, he must confine his writings to 
events of the past year. If one wishes to delve further into the past, he can 
recommend a reading of the Proceedings of previous years. For every report in our 
Proceedings is a record for the Historian. A researcher will find history recorded in 
the Grand Z's report, in the reports of the Grand Superintendents and in the reports 
of the various Committees 

In this report, we wish to record these gleanings in our research of events of 
the past year: - 

(1) Dispensations to form Chapters were granted to: (i) - 5 Chapters, 75 years ago; 
(ii) - 11 Chapters, 60 years ago; (iii) - 2 Chapters, 50 years ago. 

(2) Number of Companions who received their: (i) - 25-year P.Pr's Jewel, 81; (ii) - 50- 
year P.Pr's Bar, 3; (iii) - 50-year R.A.M. Jewel, 83; (iv) - 60-year R.A.M. 
Numerals, 59; (v) - 70-year R.A.M. Numeral, 1 (Comp. M.F. Dyke, Algonquin 
Chap., No. 102); (vi) - 75-year R.A.M. Numeral, 1 (Comp. H.E. Chittendom, 
Mt. Horeb Chap., No. 20). 

Comp. Chittenden was also presented with his 75-year Grand Lodge Pin by M. 
Wor. Bro. and V. Ex. Comp. Wm. K. Bailey. Shortly after these presentations, 
he Passed To The Grand Chapter Above. 

In conclusion, I would address a message and encouragement to all Scribe E's 
and all chroniclers of reports, that they fashion their writings ever bearing in mind 
that some day an Historian will research them. Their contributions will be judged by 
the clarity and comprehensiveness of their submissions. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

RT. EX. COMP. SAMUEL TENENBAUM, Grand Historian 

Moved by Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Stuart, seconded by Rt. Ex. Comp. Sam 
Tenenbaum. That this report be received and adopted by Grand Chapter Carried 



74 GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FINANCE 

To the Most Excellent, The Grand First Principal, Officers and Member of the Grand 
Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada, in the Province of Ontario: 

Most Excellent Sir and Companions: 

The Committee on Finance submits herewith its report for the year ending 
February 28th, 1981. 

The report of the Auditors for the year ending February 28th, 1981 has been 
reviewed by the Members of the Committee on Finance. It is our opinion that these 
reports present full and adequate details of all Receipts and Disbursements during the 
fiscal year in respect to the financial affairs of this Grand Chapter. 

As Chairman, I would be most remiss if I did not express my appreciation and 
sincere thanks for the encouragement received from the members of the Grand 
Council, and the assistance of the staff of the Grand Chapter Office. 

In presenting the following budget for the period of 1 March, 1981 to 28 
February, 1982, we project a deficit of $475. 

Respectfully and fraternally, 

C. W. EMMETT, CHAIRMAN OF FINANCE 

Moved by Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Stuart, seconded by M. Ex. Comp. Charles 
W. Emmett that this report be received and adopted by Grand Chapter. Carried

ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 85 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CONDITION 
OF CAPITULAR MASONRY 

To the Most Excellent Grand First Principal, Officers and Companions of the Grand 
Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Excellent Sir and Companions, 

Once again your Committee has been given the responsible and interesting 
assignment of reviewing the activities, and appraising the progress of Capitular 
Masonry in this Grand Jurisdiction during the past year. 

In presenting this report your committee wishes to express its appreciation to 
those Grand Superintendants who submitted their reports and the Comprehensive 
information which they contained. It is only through their assistance as well as that 
provided by the issues of the Keystone that we are able to compile and present an 

:curate and meaningful appraisal of the condition of Capitular Masonry in this 

jrand Jurisdiction. 

This year your Chairman has had the added benefit of receiving the notices of 
many Chapters. This has proven most helpful and we again recommend that we be 
added to the mailing list of all Chapters in this Jurisdiction. 

Practically all the Grand Superintendent reports make mention of the 
difficulty in securing candidates. This points out need for us to examine our entire 
•membership effort. Some Superintendents state without a greater increase in members 
jme Chapters could in a few years face a real problem, particularly financially. This 
points out a great need to strengthen our ties with Craft Masonry and reorganizing 
our membership committees. We must indicate our interest by our attendance and 
participation in our Symbolic Lodges. Some Chapters report great success with 
organized meetings of Royal Arch Masons attending Craft Lodge Meetings. The 
interest thus created, resulted in many new members. 

We note with satisfaction that there has been a substantial reduction in the 
lumber of suspensions and many of these are the result of the member moving 
without supplying a forwarding address. Demits have decreased 32% over 1979 
figures with almost a third of those demitted indicated their intention to affiliate with 
other Chapters. 

Suspension for non payment of dues should never be handled in a routine 
manner. The act of suspending a Companion does not fit into our concept of Royal 
Arch Masonry except in the most extreme and unusual situations. We urge every 
"hapter to adopt that workable procedure whereby a personal call is made, before 
.-my action is taken upon a member who appears to be heading toward a suspension or 
vho is seeking a demit. Not only will this personal visit provide additional and vital 
n formation for the officers and members, but it will also create in the member, 
mcerned in many cases, renewed interest in the work of the Chapter and his possible 
.uitinuation as an active member. 

Attendance appears to be a perennial problem, particularly in some Chapters, 
-e believe that lack of attendance at our meetings is not caused by the many social 
attractions in which our restless society is engaged. A multitude of activities may con- 
tribute to the decline in attendance, but they do not constitute the cause. We are con- 
vinced there is nothing wrong with our Chapters that good leadership and well 
planned programs will not cure. 

We suggest the need of giving more attention to the quality of Junior Officers. 
Too often appointments are made based on personal friendships or social connections, 
with little or no thought given to the ability to provide leadership when they reach the 
presiding officer's chair. Poor performance on the part of the presiding officer is 
bound to be harmful. Members lose interest, Junior Officers have nothing to 
stimulate or inspire them, they become careless and indifferent in their attendance and 
in their work. 



86 GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 



The overall strength and growth of Royal Arch Masonry has been improved by 
the recent establishment of two new Chapters. 

We take this opportunity to extend best wishes for the future success of 
Tecumseth Chapter U.D. meeting at Tottenham which was instituted on Feb. 8th, 
1980, and Brampton Chapter U.D. instituted on the 14th of April, 1980. 

It is appropriate that we should commend the founding members who so 
quietly and unselfishly provided the leadership. Their example inspires others to 
become involved in the many avenues, so necessary in their future development and 

Many of our Companions both individually and collectively are deserving of 
congratulations and best wishes because of their interesting and significant accom- 
plishments during the year. Among these are Malloch Chapter No. 66 which moved 
from Seaforth to Hensall and Kitchener Chapter No. 210 which moved from Russell 
to Richmond. Dedication ceremonies under the direction of our Grand First Principal 
were most effectively completed. We join with all the Companions in wishing for them 
success and prosperity in the furthering of Capitular Masonry in their respective 
districts. 

We extend our congratulations to the many members who have throughout the 
past year, been presented with jewels in recognition of their service to Royal Arch 
Masonry. 

Eighty of our Companions were presented with 25 yr. Past Principal jewels, 6 
with 50 yr. Past Principal jewels, 70 of our members received jewels commemorating 
50 yrs. service, 25 companions received 60 yr. numerals, and one companion a 70 yr. 
numeral. 

Most Ex. Comp. Scott accompanied by our Grand Scribe E. presented Comp. 
Ed Chittenden of Mount Horeb Chapter No. 20 his numeral denoting 75 years 
service. 

These companions deserve our thanks for their continued support to our Craft 
over these many years. 

This committee commends the many Royal Arch Masons who are contributing 
substantially to our Grand Lodge and Symbolic Masonry in general. We also com- 
mend those, who are providing leadership in the other concordant bodies of 
Freemasonry. 

Their example inspires others to become involved in the many avenues of 
service, not only to masonry, but in humanitarian areas, in church, in community 
projects and in all levels of government. 

We have noted with pleasure the number of contributions to the Grand 
Chapter Bursury Fund. The support of every Companion is earnestly solicited and 
recommended to this most worthy cause. 

We join with all the Companions of this Grand Jurisdiction in congratulating 
the Toronto Districts 8 & 8 A in their generous gift of $12,000.00 to the Metro Organ 
and Retreival Exchange programme. 

This my Companions is a true demonstration of Masonry in action. 

It is with deep regret and sorrow that we record the passing to the Grand 
Chapter above of so many of our Stalwart members, who will be remembered for 
their friendship and wise counsel. As is always the case many of these Companions 
were leaders in our Craft and members of this Grand Chapter, while others devoted 
their time to the welfare and prosperity of their individual Chapters. We remember 
them all with appreciation and affection and extend our sympathy to their loved ones. 

Our Chapters are indeed indebted to Rt. Ex. Comp. George Johnson for his 
great contribution by way of the Keystone in keeping us informed of the many 
worthwhile events which occur throughout our Jurisdiction. 



ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 87 

We recommend a reporter be appointed from each district to ensure a complete 
and comprehensive coverage of Masonry in every area so that the number of public- 
ations may be increased. 

One cannot estimate the value of these communications which in many cases 
provide the sole link between Royal Arch Masonry, and those who because of illness 
or infirmities can no longer attend their Chapters. 

In general the state of Capitular Masonry in Ontario is healthy and most of 
our Chapters are in good condition. Some Chapters perhaps because of the social, 
political or economic climate are not enjoying normal membership growth. Your 
committee earnestly recommends that all Chapters provide programs in addition to 
degree exemplification. Promotional meetings with qualified speakers, other enter- 
tainment such as Ladies Nights, family picnics, curling, golf, and other social events 
can be most helpful in arousing the interest among its members, and in many cases 
encouraging otherwise, inactive members to contibrute their services and become 
more closely identified with their Chapters. 

As we approach the end of this report, after many hours of exhaustive study 
and research, we pause to speculate on how many outside of this room will read its 
contents. 

Your committee recommend that a greater effort be made to familiarize our 
members with what transpires at the meetings of Grand Chapter, so that our cares 
and concern, and recommendations may be more generally diffused. It is regrettable 
that our printed proceedings in many cases simply form an annual addition to the 
dust covered collection admidst the Chapter Archives. Our proceedings contain a 
mine of information that must be of great interest to our members. The state of 
affairs is not only peculiar to Royal Arch Masonry but parallel conditions exist in all 
branches of Freemasonry. 

We therefore suggest that excerpts from the Grand First Principals address, 
this and other committee reports be read in open Chapter by a well skilled 
Companion, or printed in the Keystone or other news letters issued by the Chapters. 
We are convinced that by improving the general knowledge of our membership at 
large, a greater interest will develop in local areas of our work. 

The duty of every Royal Arch Mason is clear. Our purpose is to shape life with 
the values of honour and integrity, of hope and goodwill. We must set the standards 
and keep them high. Our task is never completed. We should remind ourselves that 
the future will be built with plans drawn of selfishness or care and concern. We must 
construct the future with our goals and with our determination. Our task is not easy, 
but it is worthwhile. The future demands the highest and the best of each of us. 

If we can meet this challenge, if we remain faithful to the call of leadership 
service, if we remain true to our obligations, we may rest assured that our 
communities will be better places in which to live, our Royal Craft will continue to 
flourish and prosper and we will have merited that congratulatory title of Most 
Excellent Master. 

This report would not be complete without acknowledging the great contri- 
bution made to our beloved Craft by our Grand First Principal during his first year 
in office. He has proven to be an able administrator, a wise and skillful leader, and 
our Craft has prospered under his capable direction. It is our prayer that the Great 
Jehovah may bless him and grant him good health in order that he might continue to 
give of his time and talents in the interest of our Royal Craft. 

We acknowledge with grateful thanks the assistance and co-operation of our 
Grand Scribe E. Rt. Ex. Comp. Robert Rigby and Mrs. Rose Kelly in supplying so 
willingly much of our statistical data.

88 GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND FIRST PRINCIPAL'S ADDRESS 

Most Excellent, the Grand First Principal, Most Worshipful, the Grand 
Master, Right Excellent, the Grand Second and Grand Third Principals, dis- 
tinguished visitors from other jurisdictions, my distinguished colleagues of Grand 
Chapter and Companions. We, the Past Grand First Principals of this Grand 
Chapter, wish to commend you, Sir, on the address delivered to this assembly. I 
hasten to say that we do this, not because of its relative brevity, in Contrast to the 
verbosity of some of us who preceded you, but because of its content, and the record 
of the excellent leadership, by precept and example, which you have given to us this 
past twelve months. 

We heartily agree with you on the choice of a site for this Grand Convocation. 
It had been far too long since we convened a session in the ambitious City, and 
mayhap we shall not again allow such a long interlude to occur before returning. 

We endorse your sentiments with regard to our Grand Master. Most Worship- 
ful Brother Richards has contributed mightily to the growing trend to closer co- 
operation between the various branches of our beloved Order, highlighted in this past 
year by those important occasions on which Grand Chapter was privileged to parti- 
cipate in the ceremony of exaltation involving distinguished members of Grand 
Lodge. 

Our Grand Master has done much, both by word and personal example, to 
reinforce the efforts of some of his recent predecessors to work closely with the 
leaders of the various Constituent Bodies, promoting a general recognition among the 
membership that we, working in the York Rite and/or the Scottish Rite, are all 
members of one Body, and unless the roots be nurtured, and the trunk remain 
healthy, the branches must wither and die. 

With you we welcome the distinguished representatives of other jurisdictions, 
both from outside our borders, and from within Canada. They do much to enhance 
our enjoyment of the occasion, and we recall with gratitude the kindness and 
hospitality which marked our visits to their Convocations. 

We join in thanksgiving for the fruitful and exemplary lives of those who have 
departed this earthly scene for the Better Land. Our belief in God the Father, and our 
acceptance of the teachings of the Volume of the Sacred Law, justify our faith in the 
Life Everlasting, and we pray that the God of all Grace will continue to sustain the 
loved ones left behind. 

We commend you on the appointment of Rt. Ex. Comp. Sam Tenenbaum to 
replace our late beloved V. Ex. Comp. John Yaeger, as Grand Historian, as well as 
that of V. Ex. Comp. Gordon Knifton to replace our faithful Companion, V. Ex. 
Comp. George Finnic 

The consecration of two new Chapters and the dedication of two new Chapter 
Rooms are positive signs of virility, which we find encouraging indeed, and we, hope 
that the increasing trend toward Life Memberships will, by avoiding suspensions and 
demits, contribute in a positive way to increased membership. Looking to this growth, 
we commend you on the production of a new form of Ceremony for the Institution of 
a New Chapter Under Dispensation. 

You, Sir, have earned the appreciation of all of us throughout this Grand Jur- 
isdiction for the way you have travelled the length and breadth of it, taking part in so 
many and varied ceremonies. If we have any reservations in this regard, they 
represent only a plea that you not endanger your health by onerous journeys trying to 
accomplish too much. We would be saddened if deprived of your inspirational leader- 
ship even for a time. 



ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 89 

Most of all, Most Excellent Sir, we give thanks to the Most High for your 
splendid example of personal conduct and adherence to Masonic Principles. These 
have been evident throughout your illustrious career. 

Your leadership has been quiet and sincere, and redolent of your humble and 
unassuming manner. Your Companions chose wisely in calling you to this post. In 
your personal life you have acknowledged the Supremacy of the Most High, and the 
value of the Volume of the Sacred Law. On the 30th April, 1863, President 
Abraham Lincoln said, in a message to his people, our great neighbour to the south: 

"It is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to 

own their dependence upon the overruling power of 

God... and to recognize the sublime truth, announced 

in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, 

that those nations only are blessed whose God is 

the Lord.... We have been the recipients of the 

choicest blessings of heaven. We have been preserved, 

these many years, in peace and proseperity. We have 

grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation 

ever has grown; BUT WE HAVE FORGOTTEN GOD! We have 

forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in 

peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened 

us; and we have vainly imagined in the deceitfulness 

of our hearts, that these blessings were produced by 

some superior wisdom and virtue of our own." 

Mr. Lincoln, in calling his nation to a day of fasting and prayer, urged a 
recognition that the fundamental blessings enjoyed by them were not theirs as of 
right, but by gift of God alone. 

Your life and leadership, Sir, are testimony enough that you subscribe to these 
sentiments, and may the God of our Fathers inspire us all to endorse your leadership 
by copying your example, that we may be found worthy, and that we all may inherit 
the promise given to those who are faithful to the end. 

I move, seconded by Most Excellent Companion Aube Weisman, that this 
report be approved.

REPORT OF THE BURSARY COMMITTEE 

To the Most Excellent, The Grand First Principal, Officers and Members of 
the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

It is with a great deal of pleasure that I can report to you that the activity of 
the Bursary program this year has closely paralleled the previous records of last year. 
While there was a slight decrease in applications for assistance (51 to 47), the same 
number of awards (41) were approved. Of particular interest and satisfaction, was 
that three of the bursaries were to dependants of deceased members of our order, two 
of whom will be graduating this year. We have provided financial support to them 
throughout their academic careers, and will continue to do so in the other case. 

Of the applications not acted on, the majority were due to their not being 
within our terms of reference. Thirty chapters from 12 districts were involved, with 27 
awards being to young ladies and 14 to young men. The Fund has now made over 300 
awards since its inception, for an expenditure of over $100,000.00, ($12,200.00 this 
year), and while some sense of satisfaction can be experienced, there is much more to 
be accomplished. 

I am sure that all here deplore the disruptions at various Universities by a few 
radicals, it is nothing new, and it is trusted that decisive action will be taken, and 
order restored. Through the procedure adopted, of having awards presented to the 
students at the Colleges or Universities involved, by either the District Superintendent 
or a delegated Senior member of our Order, we have personal contact with the 
recipients. We are grateful to those officers for their assistance, not only in making 
the necessary arrangements, travelling, in many cases, considerable distance to 
perform the presentation, but above all for their comments on the calibre of our 
students. There is every reason to believe that they are totally out of sympathy with 
the actions of the few. These are a fine, serious, appreciative group of young people, 
who will provide future leadership in their communities. 

The ready co-operation of the Registrars, Students Awards Offices, etc. at the 
Universities is herewith acknowledged. The Royal Arch Masons Bursary Program has 
gained prestige and recognition in many academic institutions. 



92 GRAND CHAPTER OF CANADA PROCEEDINGS 



The continued generous financial support of various individuals is herewith 
acknowledged. They would prefer not to be named. We are particularly grateful for 
the following donations: the bequest of $2,000. from the estate of the late V. Ex. 
Comp. Walter E. Bannon of Corinthian Chapter No. 36. To perpetuate his memory, 
this sum has been invested with the income available to the Committees of future 
years. A memorial collection from the Companions of McKay Chapter No. 243, in 
the sum of $230.00 pertaining to their Tyler for many years, the late V. Ex. Comp. E. 
Spera, who died in office at the age of 99, was gratefully received, as was a similar 
collection taken by the Companions of Keystone Chapter No. 224 as a memorial to 
the late Ex. Comp. Lickers. The thoughtfulness and support of the program by Miss 
Winnifred Hay, B.A., has been mentioned in previous reports. She commemorates 
the birthdate of her late brother Ex. Comp. J.L. Hay, Z of Ionic Chapter, with a 
donation to the Fund, and this year added a footnote: 

"I've increased it because of inflation". It brought a warm glow. These will 
enable us to brighten the lives of younger people and provide compensation for the 
loss of Companions who in their lifetime enriched the lives of others. I commend the 
practice to you. 

Many Chapters have given steady support, and the District Bursary Chairmen 
have been diligent. Toronto District 8A maintained its record of 100% participation 
under the leadership of Ex. Comp. Gary McNeice. 

The original terms of reference for the administration of the program are 
outmoded. A revision has been made by the Committee, and these are submitted for 
your approval. They clarify present practice, and take into consideration changes in 
course structures instituted by the seats of learning. Upon endorsement, they will be 
recorded as an appendix to this report. 

Inflation has reached into the field of education. Course fees have increased 
approximately 20% this year, and both the students and the Bursary Committee face 
further challenges. Most of the costs for fees, books, and university residence is paid 
by the students from summer and part time earnings. Many are in debt to the Ontario 
Student Aid Program. In their letters, they express their deep appreciation for what 
assistance we are able to award. 

The response to the appeal sent to the individual members has been encour- 
aging. Truly the office of Scribe "E" of a Chapter is a labour of love, and the credit 
for the improvement in revenue must be shared among them, and Ex. Comp. Victor 
Ozol. The preparation, printing and distribution of the literature has been at his own 
expense. Despite ill health for most of the year, his enthusiasm in Committee affairs 
has been unbounded - a sincere Mason and member of the Committee. 

Rt. Ex. Comp. Cedric Dale will assume the duties of Committee Chairman, 
with Rt. Ex. Comp. John Blackwell, as Vice-Chairman, and with your approval, Ex. 
Comp. Gary Niece will serve on the Committee for a five year term. 

To the ex-officio members of the Committee, particularly Most Ex. Comp. C. 
Emmett, Most Ex. Comp. Aube Wiseman, and V. Ex. Comp. Dr. Sankey for their 
guidance and encouragement; to my colleagues, Companions and valued friends for 
their understanding and assistance; to the Grand Scribe "E" and Mrs. Rose Kelly, 
who have given every co-operation, and made a demanding duty a rewarding one, I 
express my personal heartfelt thanks. 

This report would not be complete without bringing to your attention the 
invaluable services of my secretary-typist. She has, cheerfully and well, relieving a 
heavy load, combined the talent of deciphering, putting in order, and presenting my 
scribble in intelligible form, with those of wife and home-maker. My gratitude is here- 
with recorded. 



ANNUAL CONVOCATION, HAMILTON, 1981 93 



Bursaries may be awarded by the Grand Chapter Bursary Committee to under- 
graduate students who are enrolled for full time study at any post-secondary 
educational institution in Canada, subject to such financial constraints as to total 
dollars awarded in any given fiscal year of Grand Chapter as the Grand Council may 
impose, and to the following terms of reference as to students receiving such 
bursaries: 

Bursaries may be awarded to Royal Arch Masons of this jurisdiction or to 
dependants of such Royal Arch Masons. The term "dependant" is defined as a child 
or ward for whose support and maintenance the Royal Arch Mason is, if living, 
personally, to some measure, financially responsible, or, if deceased, who had such 
responsibility prior to his death. 

Before approval of the grant of a bursary, the Bursary Committee will satisfy 
itself as to the above, that there is financial need for bursary assistance in order to 
continue the desired education, and that the student has completed full time registra- 
tion in the institution of his/her choice. 

A student is eligible, subject to reasonable academic progress, to receive 
bursaries in not more than four academic years. In approving successive bursary 
awards the Bursary Committee will give favourable consideration to students who 
work to help contribute to their own support. Where, because of course structure, the 
term "academic year" is not easily defined, the Bursary Committee may accept credit 
for normally five, and, in any event not less than four, full courses as the equivalent 
of an academic year. 

The Bursary Committee has authority to require information, by application 
form or otherwise, adequate to establish eligibility and will not approve a bursary 
award in the absence of such information except in cases of emergency where, subject 
to approval by the Grand First Principal, special action may be taken. Personal and 
financial information submitted is confidential to the Bursary Committee, and to such 
members of Grand Chapter as may be necessary to compile and verify it. 

What is our Bursary Program? It is a practical demonstration of the principles 
of our Order: Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. It gives life to our ritual. It merits 
your support. 

Perhaps it is best summed up in a few words that I came across forty years 
ago: 

"He that serves his fellows, serves his God". 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Committee: 

RT. EX. COMP. C. DALE 
RT. EX. COMP. J. BLACKWELL 
V. EX. COMP. BYRON GORDON 
EX. COMP. VICTOR OZOL. 

JACK I. LOFT, CHAIRMAN 

Moved by Rt. Ex. Comp. Gordon Stuart, seconded by V. Ex. Comp. Jack 
Loft that this report be received and adopted by Grand Chapter. Carried
